I have a couple of questions for you about this episode, and when it came down to it, I just couldn’t decide which one to ask. Why limit us, right? So let’s do this…
1. What would the series be like if Cam HAD died in this episode? How would it have affected Booth? What important later moments in the series would have gone differently?
2. Is Epps the worst? Ever? Why or why not?
3. The line. Yep. I feel like we can see realization in Brennan’s eyes in that scene. It’s not a meaningless line. She says she understands what he means, and she does. She understands what he’s saying (as we know, it will be exactly the next episode in which she finds another love interest…). It also seems clear to me that Booth is not happy about the words. I think they both know exactly what is being said there. But what do you think?
There are also some funny moments in this episode, like the Mrs. Epps stuff, when Booth tells Brennan she is not allowed to go anywhere ever, and when Brennan has a huge gun (and the subsequent “bigger is always better” conversation about ‘guns’ with Booth). So maybe there are other moments that you love. If so, drop them in the comments!
In the meantime, here is the B&B of the day:
